Yea, maybe if you've got a woodstove burning in the room too...

Replace the word "Amish" with "Ronco" and,... you get the picture. Remember, Ronco didn't have local shops either, the reason, most of their products were gimmicks.
Shame on the Amish for trading their good name as wood craftmen to this unproven technology.
The Amish people don't own the name Amish. They don't watch TV and don't have anything to do with the heater, idiot.

I purchased a Amish heater and I love it. saves me alot on fuel and it has no problem heating the area I need heated and my elec bilL only goes up about 8.00 per month I hardly ever use the high setting. I love it, it works and i want another. for the familyroom down stairs

Everybody that gets one knows they work. Everybody else claims to be an engineer or something else and they don't have a clue. I'm sick of idiots posting that 1500 watts is 1500 watts and that all electric heat is the same. Nothing could be further from the truth and I could prove it in 3 seconds. My wife's hairdryer is 1800 watts, it is electric heat.(Let's bet which one would heat up the room fastest!) I have a 1400 watt heat gun. According to these clueless engineer wannabes my wife's hairdryer should put out more heat. But I can tell you that my heat gun will burn your hand in 3 seconds from a distance that most people use a hairdryer to dry their hair. So not all 1500 watts are the same. Also, a toaster is typically 1500 watts. Why don't you stick one in a room, put a fan behind it and let me know how it works out heating your room. Look, I have tried every heater made in a downstairs room that is 24 X 15 and they ran all the time and never really helped much unless they were right by me. With the exception of the oil heaters I tried they didn't even heat the room up. I bought a Dr. Heater, put it at the other end of the room and within a 1/2 hour I notice a difference. These work, they are more efficient, and they are quieter than any of the cheap fan heaters you can buy.

I found this on line from CU:

Quote:
Consumer Reports, February 10, 2010:

Heating Claims Don't Add Up
Manufacturers of electric space heaters want you to believe that using one of their devices will lower your heating bill. Lowering your home's thermostat(s) and using your main heating system less in tandem with a space heater--called zone heating--will cut your utility bill.(Every degree you lower the thermostat(s) can save you about 2 percent on your heating bill.) But keep in mind that based on current national average prices and adjusting for the energy losses due to burning a fuel, heating with electricity is about two and a half times more expensive than heating with gas, the most common heating fuel in this country.

EdenPure suggests that "you can turn the heat down in your house as low as 50F, yet the room you are in will be warm and comfortable. When you move to another room, the EdenPure goes with you. Its wheels make relocation a snap." That scenario assumes that you have to heat only a single room to heat at a time or that you own multiple EdenPure space heaters; that once you're in a room you stay put and don't move around the house; and that you're willing to keep the rest of your home at a chilly 50F. Lowering the thermostat(s) by 3F would likely result in minimal discomfort for you and your family, but are you willing to keep your home at 50F?

The 1,483-watt EdenPure Gen 3 Model 1000 uses quartz infrared elements as the heat source. Its design essentially negates the radiant-heating effect, so it operates more like a typical fan-forced convection heater. While a fan can help mix the room air, there is typically some temperature variation, with cooler air near the floor and warmer air near the ceiling.

Humidity Information Seems All Wet
EdenPure says its heaters "protects the humidity level and air quality important to breathing comfort and personal health," and also notes that "Heat from the copper tubing rides the humidity in the room and provides moist, soft heat--ceiling-to-floor, wall-to-wall--without reducing oxygen or humidity."

Simply put, when you heat a room with any space heater and don't also have an additional source of humidity, say a humidifier, the total moisture in the air in that space will stays the same but the relative humidity will go down, not up. That's true for every space heater we've tested, including the EdenPure Gen 3 Model 1000.

...

In the end, remember that electric space heaters in and of themselves can't save you energy and lower your utility bills over the winter. To do that, you need to weatherize your home and lower your thermostat(s) so your heating system has to work less. But if you're going to buy a space heater, you don't have to shell out $400 or more for the EdenPure Gen 3 Model 1000.

I have been using an Amish heater for about 7 years... I'm on my second one... I sent the 1st one back and they replaced it with a new one.
It gives off enough heat to warm my rather large living room where I sit in the winter.I love the looks of it. I am not looking to heat the whole house.
It looks like a piece of furniture and rolls nicely if I want to move it closer or farther away. I have real fireplace w/ wood ready to be lit right behind this little heater. I choose to use this instead.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading all the other comments from some passionate people.
Thanks for reading this.

For the idiot who is bad mouthing eden pure heaters,
You dont know what the hell you are talking about !

Winter like conditions? yeah, does - 5 at night qualify ?
Not only does it work, I NEVER have it on at full max, not even half

Keep up the praise, it's the only hope to impress a gullible public.

Just combine one EdenPure heater and one Hendershot perpetual motion power generator and heat the whole block for a winter block party.

We have two Lilly 1800's. There nice and they well...heat as a 1500W heater should but this is the bottom line for me and I hope it helps everyone decide for themselves. It's is just another 1500W heater and you don't get something for nothing. So the way I see it is, that if you don't get a lot of years of usage out of it you've wasted your money. If you pay $200 for a 1500W heater when you could have bought one for $60 at Lowe's then all you can do is hope that it will out last the $60 unit. These heaters were given to us as a Xmas present, so we are like huumm.. lets see if they are really that much better. Well we have concluded that the answer is NO. They don't put out any more heat..1500W is 1500W although they do have better airflow which might make them a little more efficient. They also seem to monitor the temp a little closer than the cheap ones. If these break we have to wait on repairs/parts. If the cheap one breaks we just go get another one. Thats our experience. Hope it helps.

They work best when rubbed together and a little gasoline is used.

Once you get them burning they will burn for a little while and produce a fair amount of heat.

Hey, it's your house.

We use propane.

Electric is expensive.

I have been thoroughly entertained and at times educated by this discussion on heaters. I own two Edenpure heaters, among others, and have had an interesting history with them. That said, does anyone even care anymore? This thread has gone well over 2 years and it appears that many of you have already made up your mind no matter what the post has to add.

I am shopping for a space heater. Would someone tell me whether "Quartz" and "infra-red" used for these heaters is false advertising or not?

We had an Eden Pure Signature series ($359.00) for three years. After two years the a heating element went out. We had to send it back and they fixed it for free. One year later (5 days out of warranty) the element went out again. So it is worthless. We run ours only while we are up and at home. We like the heat in our living room so I went out and bought a knock off (Sunheat) and it is working like a champ so far. It also has a 3 year warranty so we will see how long it lasts. I could not see spending so much on an Eden Pure if it was only going to last until the warranty ran out.

Technically it's not false advertising but it is intended to create a false impression of technology. Normally one thinks of quartz infrared heat as being radiant heat that heats objects rather than the air, in the case of the EdenPure and its knock-offs the quarz infrared is used to heat a "heat sink" which releases its heat via a fan. A more accurate description would be a fan forced convection heater as it provides hot air rather than radiant heat. However the heat from any source is in fact infrared so that part is accurate.

CU is a pretty accurate source with no axe to grind so read the excerpt from CU above to get an accurate take on the performance claims. All electric heaters are 100% efficient in that all watts consumed result in heat, even the energy consumed by the fan dies a heat death.
